I want to create a program on a local machine (Windows / Linux) which will connect to a Mainframe computer (given IP Address and port number). I want to run a REXX Script which is present on this mainframe (z/OS).

Any help is appreciated.

What kind of protocol does the mainframe expect on that port - Telnet? SSH? Something else?

Connection to Mainframe will be established via TCP/IP using TN3270 / TN3270E protocol.

So you're looking for a Java client for that protocol?

Not exactly a java client. I only want to code a program that will run a REXX script.

Actually I want access to COBOL programs (which will be in some PDS on Mainframe) on my local machine so that I can analyse them. I will call the remote REXX script from my local Java program. This script will give me access to COB programs I require.

Anyways if there is some Open Source Java client using this protocol, that would be helpful. I can go through its source code and create my own Java program.
